Ah, the NCAA Sweet Sixteen has evaded Virginia Commonwealth University. After beating Duke on Thursday, they entered the second round in their game against #3 seed Pittsburgh on Saturday evening. But the Sweet Sixteen was not meant to be. Down 41-26 at the half, VCU managed to CHIP away at Pittsburgh and tied the game 67-all with 1:42 left. When the buzzer sounded, the score was 69-69 and thus began the heart-wrenching OT for both VCU and Pittsburgh fans alike. In the end, Pitt prevailed and ultimately recovered after blowing a 19 point lead in the second half. My Rams are coming home, but not before making their name well known in the world of college basketball - a world that more often than not craves a Cinderella team. VCU, unfortunately, dropped their glass slipper in Buffalo and there was no one there to pick it up.
